Youtuber, actor and now boxer Jake Paul knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson on Saturday night to shock the world. Paul had already fought before, but it was the way he handled Robinson that surprised everybody. The former New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls player was making his boxing debut but it’s unclear if he’ll want to do it again after the big knockout loss.
Paul finished the job in the second round, leaving a lot of good things to remember. It was a nice performance from the former Disney actor, who is now looking for a new rival. Before the fight, he was asked if he could take on the Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James for his next fight, but Paul made it clear that he wants nothing to do with the King.
Talking with Twitter personality ‘King Josiah,’ Paul instantly shut down that idea.
“Oh s—,” said Paul. “Nah, he’s too big.”

LeBron is indeed too big and even though he’s one of the most easy-going and chill players in the league, not everybody wants to mess with the King. A couple of months ago, Colby Covington issued a warning to Bron, telling him he could beat him in 10 seconds.
The UFC star doesn’t seem to be afraid of the King and he made it clear. As for Paul, he’s too smart to be asking for that smoke. He did a great job against Nate Robinson, knocking him out and making a good impression among NBA players, who didn’t hesitate to mock Robinson and his performance.
